Children Who Grew Up in Bars

I was a kid who grew up in a bar. It was the family business, owned by my parents. The bar was attached to the house and I lived there from birth to the time I left for college.

Now, decades later, I feel depressed and unhappy. I feel unsatisfied with my career and most of my social relationships. To use a figure of speech, my life is going nowhere. Looking back, I don't think ...

cognitive distortion - mind-reading

I had an instance where I strongly disagreed with my therapist's point of view recently. Was hoping I could hash it out here to get some more thoughts.

​Most of you are probably familiar with the concept of cognitive distortions - if not, and you're struggling in any way with mental health, they can be a VALUABLE weapon in your fight for recovery. Mind-reading, minimization, maximization, personalization, fortune-telling, projecting - these are just SOME examples ...

Connection between your parents/spouses and mental illness?

There have been a lot of studies how people with mental illness are attracted to other who have mental illness.

I was wondering if someone whose parent is mentally ill tends to seek out partners/spouses who are mentally ill?

My mother had an undiagnosed mental illness that may have been schizophrenia and my spouse was diagnosed with bipolar disease.

I have searched and found no studies that looked at this connection, but it seems unlikely ...

Struggling with An Addictive Tendencies and Strange Thoughts

I’m looking for advice and possible ideas of what could be going on With several mental health issues that I’ve struggled with since middle school but seem to be getting worse. I’m 37 and single if it matters.

Self-monitoring and astonishment

I m experiencing, from 4 months ago up today, a strange feeling, which is not feeling myself, which sometimes led to a state of fear, insomnia, and the inability to control this feeling, and it caused me great pressure in my mind from thinking too much. Later, I feel that I am watching myself a lot, as if I am waiting for myself to wake up or go to a place... or I am watching ...

Why are Participants on Legal Forums so Vicious?

....and condescending. I've been relatively active on various other forums that include tennis, audio, photography, cycling, guitar, dogs, cats, automobiles, etc and the participants have always been extremely helpful, courteous and nice. I always end my questions or requests with "Thank you very much in advance!"

However, and very interestingly, I've been on two different legal forums and the replies are ALWAYS condescending, often downright vicious.

I have some theories, but I'd like to hear ...
